Installing for a Limited User

"Limited Users" in Windows do not have permission to install programs. Here are the steps for installing a FileCenter program for a limited user:

  1. Log in with the Administrator account
  2. Download the latest version of the program (see FileCenter Downloads).
  3. As Administrator, run the installer
  4. When there is a choice between installing for All Users or Current User, select All Users or All Users with Roaming Profiles (if you want each user to have their own settings and preferences).
  5. After the installation is complete, the Administrator can then log out and the Limited User can log in.

If for some reason the user doesn't get a shortcut on their desktop, create it manually (the programs are typically installed to "C:\Program Files\FileCenter\Main" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\FileCenter\Main").

When the limited user first launches the program, the product key may need to be re-entered.

A better solution starts right here.
